Jerry Janik Resigns Board Position
Board director Jerry Janik has resigned from the Board of Directors. Jerry has served on the board for many years and is one of the original BWTOA members. In addition to his board duties, Jerry took on the responsibility of posting the informational signs and putting up and taking down the Christmas decorations at the entrances. The board and community have greatly benefitted from Jerry’s service and involvement.
Annual Meeting Voting Results
As you know, this year’s annual meeting was actually two meetings in one. The membership voted to approve the bylaws at the special meeting that is required by our documents. The board will now turn its attention to revising the rules and regulations.
The members also voted to approve the budget that was sent to all members. The assessment for 2017 will remain the same and assessment notices will be sent out around March 18.
In addition, Christopher Forbes, Betty Theisen, and Craig Gaska were elected to the board of directors. Directors Jenni Aleckson and Lee Erchull are starting the second year of their two-year terms.
BWTOA Needs TWO Board Directors
Many thanks to Christopher Forbes for stepping up and volunteering to run for the Board of Directors. Along with Christopher, incumbents Betty Theisen and Craig Gaska were reelected to the board. Members Jenni Aleckson and Lee Erchull continue to serve on the board. There are two more positions open on the board due to the resignations of Julia Carroll, Linda Gaska, and Jerry Janik. Pease consider getting involved in our community and serving on the board. If you are interested, please contact Craig Gaska (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and he will assist you in the appointment process.
Sign and Decoration Help Needed
Our association is in need of a member who is willing to manage the informational signs that are posted at the entrances announcing special community events, such as meetings, picnics, and clean-up days. We also need a community member to put up and take down the Christmas wreaths and garland as well. If you are willing to take on this responsibility, please contact Craig Gaska (email@example.com
). Please be involved; we can truly use the help.
Because of all the housing activity in Black Walnut Trails this past year, the BWTOA Board of Directors will be publishing a new directory. In order to save printing and postage costs, an electronic version is being offered to community members. If you wish to receive a PDF version of the directory and help us offset the cost of postage and printing, please send an email to Linda Gaska (firstname.lastname@example.org
) requesting an electronic directory. She will reply to your email with the PDF attachment. Thank you for helping us save paper, printing costs, and postage.
